Sadly we were there on a "dry" day so no adult beverages to accompany our meal. we had one meal that was inferior and the server was very keen to make amends and brought the chef over etc. They gave us a free dessert as well taking the said entree off our check. Our daughter had the lobster which was good, the crab entree while tasty was a lot of work for very little meat. But good flavors! our soups were delicious as well as the welcome beverage.

The waterside location is great and one is taken there on a golf cart from the main hotel.

Visited Bait multiple times during our stay at Taj. The local food is quite nice - the fish fry, the kaalan, parothas - all quite lovely. They have limited options for young kids who can't handle too much spice. They do have pizza on the menu, but the time we had it, it was rather dry and mediocre. [Oh and pizza is not available for dinner]

Overall, totally worth a meal owing to its setting by the waters, and the local foods. The venue is stunning at dinner time!

Had lunch on three occasions. The food is really class in its own. Fresh Sea food, tasty, prepared with authentic local spices. Mouth watering sea food dishes. Cool breeze from the sea. Hot food. Cool breeze from sea. A good cocktail made the lunch in a heavenly restaurant. Ideal place to spend time. Very nice location. No vehicular movement. Tranquil, quiet and breezy. Blissful place. Can see the horizon on the sea. Affable service from the restaurant chef and servers. Must visit place for tourists.
